How many graduates found a job in their chosen field or continued their education (graduate school, a bachelor’s degree in another academic major, or another professional program) within seven months of graduation? Waldorf College collects employment data from our bachelor’s degree recipients only.
Waldorf College is not provided a specific methodology for calculating placement by the State or any accrediting agency. Placement data is collected per the process identified in the Consent to Participate in Research, Project Title: Placement Statistics, used as directed by the Waldorf College Institutional Review Board.
The U.S. Department of Education has advised Waldorf that the Gainful Employment regulation applies only to Waldorf’s academic programs that were first offered on or after 1/01/09. Those programs are listed below. Waldorf also offers a full slate of other quality academic programs that are not covered by the regulation. See the graduate placement report for placement information on all majors.
*This program is relatively new, and as a result, there is no placement data yet to report.

At Waldorf College, students have the option to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in four years or the option to take fewer courses per term, extending their timeframe for completing the program. Waldorf’s on-time graduation rate is the percentage of bachelor’s degree graduates who completed their programs within four years.

Degree Cost Calculation:
Tuition, fees, and room/board were calculated by multiplying the 2012-13 annual rates by four years, the typical completion time for Waldorf's bachelor's degree programs. Costs for room and board apply only to residential programs. Costs may vary due a variety of factors, such as the number of credits the student takes each semester or term.
Textbook and supply costs were compiled for each academic program using the 2011-12 rates. Costs for textbooks and supplies may vary due to a variety of factors, such as cost fluctuations and student selection of course electives. Currently textbooks are provided free-of-charge to students enrolled in Waldorf's online degree programs through a Textbook Grant program.
Transportation and personal expenses listed for residential programs reflect the estimates provided by the Iowa College Student Aid Commission, multiplied by four years. For online programs, transportation costs reflect the average expenses for one residency course, multiplied by four, as four is the maximum number of residency courses that would be required. For online programs, personal expenses are listed at zero, as students may continue to live at home and work for the duration of the online degree program. Transportation and personal expenses are estimates and may vary.
In addition to grants and scholarship aid for which they are eligible, some graduates use loans to finance their education. The median debt for Waldorf graduates is listed in the table below for programs covered by the Gainful Employment regulation.
